The year is 2025 – the United States is now governed by an Imperator, the wall has been built, and a Civil War has erupted. Colonel Adriana Pinel and Private Melissa O’Leary temporarily escape the battle and bond before the enemy discovers their hide out.
Written and directed by Natalia Lazarus who was born in Honduras and now runs the Promenade Playhouse in Santa Monica.
We were so proud to be part of such a timely piece and to have been selected for Short and Sweet Latino Week.
The play is ensconced in the political vernacular of the current American scene and has the unique feature of putting 2 women in the lead roles as soldiers fighting in the battlefield – which is something that normally doesn’t happen. Only men are thrown into the battlefield but in a Civil War everything is possible.

THE SAL MINEO STORY

Dean Ghaffari's one man show brings insight into the life of Sal Mineo, the great American, two time Oscar nominated actor, best remembered for his role as "Plato", in the classic, "Rebel Without a Cause". Though a gold record selling pop star and a prominent figure for gay rights in the 60's - his career was at a screeching halt. The show takes us to the cusp of his acting come back until it all comes to a tragic end.
